    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    By taking this course, you learn many different perspectives of learning situations. This course makes you think roughly about life and how we live in society.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many aspects about the mind and how it works, the educational system, gender and about society. This course requires a book of essays on different philosophers about these topics. You get to learn about their ideas and see different perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the right book edition. It was hard to follow along in class with different page numbers. A big thing is to never waste time. Read all the philosophers points so that you can combine them to make a better essay.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is not required for an associates degree, but pretty much necessary for a transfer to a university. He's a good teacher, I learned a lot from him. He's funny too. There is a lot of work, but it makes sense , is not overwhelming and applies to the course and to life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think Critically and turn it into an essay. I learned how to make an argument and back it up with solid evidence. I learned how not to trust my initial opinion, but look for the facts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work. It's not that bad and you will learn great skills from it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend Professor Francev; his teaching skills are great. He always has time to help you with Albert Camus' books and essays. Although he can be sarcastic and tough on grading, as long as you stay on top and read the pages he asks you to read (take notes!), you should pass the class with an A.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of the course is learning so much symbolism from the Albert Camus books. Professor Francev really wants you to succeed in his class and he wants you to really try when it comes to reading his books. When attending his classes, come with an open mind because the toughest symbolism in the books can be clear as day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend reading the pages Professor Francev assigns you. He will ask you to tell him about what you read and you do not want to be the person he calls out. He's tough on those who fail to complete his assignments. I also recommend taking notes while reading and then make room to add to your notes when you walk into his class. He gives a lot of material and helpful tools when it's time to write essays.
